Windows 7: 8 Reallocated Sectors, Bad?

23 Jun 2011   #11

Windows 2000 5.0 Build 2195

Keep a good look out for it, and do backups more often. Reallocated sectors=bad sectors=dying hard disk, though not necessarily dying.

On my experience, I ignored the bad sectors. I mean, 8kb of bad sectors isn't that bad, right? To my dismay, it slowly started growing over the weeks. Then I started getting CRC errors when opening some files. Next thing I knew my HDD died and I lost everything permanently. I should've known better; I was 14. But meh, these experiences make you learn and helps you warn people too
